Hi Snow White the one I use on the pups has a 250 watt red bulb.

I had a litter of 7 springer pups last year and they was kennelled outdoors and on the days when it was a little warmer I would flick the switch and it would be 125 watt above them.

But in the evening it was turned back to 250 watt.

We use a 250 wat infrared bulb in the brood chamber and raise the height to reduce temperature. I leave a thermometer on the floor under the lamp which seems to match how the birds behave. I would have thought the same could be done for puppies albeit potentially aiming for different temperatures.
